Developing our features and providing good quality is our biggest aim. With our Direct Publishing feature, you can publish your Virtual Reality project directly to your website.

Virtual Reality has an immediate transporting effect and can revolutionize the website experience by affecting emotions and creating a very unique atmosphere. With our Direct Publishing feature you can publish your Virtual Reality project instantly, without any waiting time.


Use the Web VR player to publish your experience on your website


The VRdirect Web player can easily be integrated in any webpage by embedding just a few lines of code. Once you published your project in the VRdirect Builder, the iframe will automatically be created. Basically, you only have to copy the whole code and paste it in the source code of your website. Your website visitors will be able to play around with your interactive Virtual Reality projects without having to download any app.

This new feature enables you to save time and become more independent by publishing your project unlisted and instantly test it in a live environment. If you want your users to get the full immersive experience, you can send them the experience code or a deeplink (you can find it in the slot management within the VRdirect Builder) in order to open your Virtual Reality project on a smartphone or in a VR device. All they have to do is to click the link or enter the code in the search bar of the VRdirect App and hit play.


To access the direct publishing feature, make sure you are using the latest VRdirect Builder version 1.6.0. If you have used the Viond Builder before, make sure to deinstall the outdated Viond Builder before installing the new VRdirect Builder.

If you do not have the VRdirect Builder or if you don't own a license yet, sign up for your free trial license and download the software for free.
